Janet Jackson Finally Refunds Fans For Cancelled Shows

Janet Jackson fans have reportedly received a settlement for tour dates that were postponed in 2016.

Some of the fans believed they should have been offered a refund when the tour was postponed last year.

When the 51-year-old singer announced she was planning a family with her husband, she also confirmed she had to delay her tour due to the high-risk nature of her pregnancy.

Because Janet hadn’t actually cancelled the tour and planned to reschedule the dates, Live Nation didn’t offer refunds to ticket holders, which had left some fans angry.

The unhappy fans then took it upon themselves to file a lawsuit against Live Nation in a bid to get their money back.
Editors at TMZ have reported that an undisclosed settlement has now been reached which coincided with the first date of Janet’s State of the World Tour.

The singer opened the tour in Louisiana on Thursday night (07Sep17) and delighted audiences with some of her classic tracks including Nasty, Alright, Control, When I Think of You, All for You, and Rhythm Nation.

On Saturday (09Sep17), Janet took to the stage in Houston, Texas despite the fact residents in the city are still recovering from the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey late last month (Aug17).

She told fans on Twitter that she was keen to still perform in the city.

“I know that there have been rumours on whether we were gonna do the show in Houston. I’m here to tell you that we are doing the show in Houston,” she wrote.

“But we’re gonna roll in early because we want to visit some of the shelters. We also want to do something special for the victims. So I will see you Friday.”

And true to her word, on Friday Janet accompanied Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner for a tour of the city and witnessed first hand the devastation caused by the hurricane.

She also visited one of the city’s largest shelters, the George R. Brown Convention Center, where 1,600 evacuees are currently being housed.
